Baked Potatoes are a traditional side item for steaks - you know the saying: I’m a steak and potatoes man. Baked Potatoes are easy to prepare, but do take some time. There is sometimes a misconception that a real Baked Potato can be achieved in the microwave. This is simple not true. Give these baked potatoes a try and you will be eating the skins too.
  Idaho potato 1 Large
  Canola oil 2 Tablespoon
  Sea salt To Taste
  Creole seasoning To Taste
  Italian seasoning To Taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

To prepare - thoroughly wash the potatoes and scrub the skin with a vegetable brush. Do not dry off. Place each potato on an ample piece of aluminum foil at an angle.

Spray the potatoes thoroughly with spray oil. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and Tony’s Creole Seasoning. Add any other seasonings you might like. Wrap each of the potatoes and seal tightly.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet (starch may leak out while baking).

Bake for 40 minutes. Turn potatoes over and bake another 40 minutes.

With a pot holder, test the potatoes for doneness by squeezing. They should easily be squeezed.

Carefully remove from oven and unwrap from foil.
